    Mountain stay outside the National Park

    Outside the park so cheaper accommodation option (RM30pp dorm room), in a beautiful mountain setting. But if you have luggage and decide to walk, instead of taking a taxi from the National Park, just be aware it's about 2km walk and there's a few uphil bits! Great location though - where the turnoff is to the Lodge from the main road, there are stalls selling vegetables and fruit. You can use the kitchen at the lodge to make your own food. The lodge has a very homely feel with lounge chairs, tv, verandah to take in the views and very helpful staff. Also, by the food stalls on the main road, you can wait to grab a bus to Kota Kinabalu - extra handy!

    Great breakfast every morning and Leo and the team are very friendly and helpful when advising on Kinabalu climb and national park trails. Side road there is a little tricky with bags!

    You know the saying "It's about the journey, not the destination"? Well, hiking up to the summit of Mt Kinabalu is about both - the entire journey and the final destination. The destination is Low's Peak at 4095.2m, and the journey is just over 8.5km of straight up, up and more up, followed by all down, down, down after you have summited.

    ... It turns out that the first days climb is 8km in length, 1500m in vertical ascent (to 3296m), and is almost entirely made up of steps. As you can imagine, the burning in your quads, calves, gluts and just about everything else was like nothing else. Thankfully, the calibre of people attempting the climb was so much worse than us, that we were able to take some reassurance that if we were struggling, they were worse! We ...

    ... what kind of an idiot I am, cos who thinks it is easy to walk constantly 8km up and up and freakin up..I mean seriously??? How could I possibly miss on that one? Was it something I wanted to believe or I really believed that?

    All those thought were doing a constant rounds in my head for I even have no clue how long.

    My guide supposed to be telling me if I'm running late or am ahead of time. At some stage, I decided I don't want to know. I knew I am giving my ...

    Ja és fosc i no ens podem despistar del guia que va a devant nostre amb el cotxe. Tot són camins sense asfaltar. Arribem a un altre embarcader i pugem a una altra barca amb més xinesos i una família sueca amb dos nens. Quan la barca s’endinsa en la foscor, encenen un lot verd que fa que les cuques s’excitin i s’encenguin. No havíem vist mai una ...
